What’s behind Hafiz Saeed’s terror funding conviction?

In Pakistan, the alleged mastermind of the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, Hafiz Saeed, has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.

A court in Lahore found him guilty of raising money for an alleged terrorist organization.

He has been sentenced in two cases of terror financing to five and a half years in prison each.

The prison terms will run concurrently. Saeed is the founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba terror group blamed by the United States and India for the four-day Mumbai siege in 2008, in which 160 people were killed.
